LOL! Limpi!!! Mr.Tinyfish is the BEST NAME EVER! I love it!!! I'm glad he's doing well, and finding some good grub in that big ol' tank. You said the shop would be getting more in this week - any idea when, yet? They're gonna be gorgeous all grown up and pretty. Can't wait to see it! Mr. Tinyfish. . . *giggle* He's gonna be the biggest of the soon-to-be group one day - watch and see!
Hallyx, I do this in my QT tank, as most of the creatures that live there are new or ill, and I think they kind of need that bit of darkness to de-stress and recover. I can often tell how they're feeling by where they are in the tank. When they just get into the tank and aren't feeling their best, they hang out in the darkness and hide in the plants, but as they start to feel better and/or are more comfortable with their new environment, they come out more, and will be seen all about the tank - regardless of the light. Just one more way to check on their progress, and (hopefully) help them heal faster/feel more comfortable. :) glad I could help - hope it works for you, too!
